Recycled Glass Ring - 22KT Gold Plated PewterSmart Glass Recycled Jewelry
Artist Kathleen Plate has always loved to create beautiful things. The seeds of her love affair with glass were planted in childhood, when her mother taught her how to solder and work with stained glass. One of Kathleen’s gifts is understanding the strengths of different tools and techniques, and then using them (often unexpectedly!) for new applications. As a graduate student and in need of a gift for a friend’s birthday, Kathleen made a pair of earrings out of glass, applying her unique perspective. The earrings were a total success and so, the path began!
The entire process, from dumpster diving for empties to styling the perfect piece of jewelry for a night out on the town is part of her art.
